    Introducing veggies and grains today...

    Well, my little guy has started to tame down (he's been perching on our hands but he still won't hang out on us yet).

    He is eating his pellets well, so I wanted to try to get him on some fruits/veggies etc. I introduced him to broccoli (he got first choice off my plate of plain steamed broccoli... i'm a vegetarian so luckily most my food is safe for him, I have a bookmarked list) and he seemed to like it. So, I went grocery shopping today and picked him up carrots, romaine lettuce, brown rice and a wheat/rice cereal (no sugars, woohoo).

    Wish me luck - I hope he takes to it without too much hassle! lol if not, I shall be reading that very long battle of the titans thread for ideas

    Hrm. Cereal went over well (of course, junk food addict) but the rest his response was to lick it and then shake his head and throw it onto my lap.

    I sprinkled millet over it to make him try to eat it, but he wouldn't even eat the millet off the fresh foods. lol *off to read the thread*

    Thanks, I think he doesn't like how it feels on his beak... after his first lick he was wiping his beak on the cage to try to get it off silly bird
